“This is a great recipe for those who love battered calamari. It's so simple and the finished product is awesome! Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.” - by Senushi
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Heat oil in a saucepan or deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Pour buttermilk into a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, salt, pepper and oregano. Dip squid rings into the buttermilk, then into the seasoned flour.
- Place the coated pieces in the hot oil, and fry in small batches, turning if necessary, for even cooking. When evenly browned, remove to paper towels to drain, and continue with the rest of the squid. Serve hot.

"This recipe is very good however for best results soak the squid in 2 cups of buttermilk for 2 hours, it makes it very tender then drain in a colander, dump all of the squid into flour mixture but up ..." See morethe amount of flour to 2 cups and toss with your hands and then deep fry, I also don't add the oregano, don't really know why but I like it without."
"Better than most restaurant calamari. We added cayenne seasoning and Emeril's Essence to the flour mixture, and it gave it a great kick...." See more"
